Our Cajun Blackened Chicken recipe has it all! It’s easy to make, quick to make, healthy and, most importantly DELICIOUS! Watch our short recipe video below and you’ll see for yourself. We love the flavor crust that is quickly seared on the outside of the chicken and then we keep the chicken from drying out by finishing it in the oven. We kept a Cajun flavor to this recipe by serving the chicken with a batch of rice with fresh veggies and a side salad. You get bonus points if you serve it with Dirty Rice!
